Sensor Development Engineers, R&D

Midtjylland, Poul Due Jensens Vej 7, 8850 Bjerringbro

Would you like to pioneer innovative sensor solutions for the next generation of sustainable Grundfos pump solutions?

As part of our global R&D organization, you will join a group of highly competent dedicated electronics, mechanics and software specialists to help tackle the world’s climate challenges.

You will be based in Bjerringbro, Denmark and join Electronic Development within Product and Offerings Development. We are responsible for developing sensors, software, electronics and mechanical housings for all Grundfos products. Here, you will get to work with several skilled and dedicated engineers with either sensor, mechanical or electronic expertise focusing on cross-functional mechatronic solutions.

You report to Senior Manager Henning Nørregaard Jensen:

“You will join a successful global company where you will get to work with the latest technology. Here, you will collaborate with skilled specialists and can further develop your skills,” Henning says.

What is the job about?

As Sensor Developer, you will work in all phases of the development projects from early idea to testing and validation of the final product with focus on sensors and integration in the products. Your main area of responsibility will be development and integration of sensor solutions e.g. temperature, pressure, flow, vibration.

We are working project-based environment, where you will join one of our project teams together with developers from other disciplines.

As increased digitalization of our offerings is a key element of Grundfos Strategy the sensors will be a key element going forward. We see an increased requests of sensor solutions in our development activities thus, you will enter an area with large focus and strategic importance.

“In this position, a key challenge will be to create an optimal design which meets our high-quality standards and at the same time is cost effective,” Henning says.

What do you need to apply?

We have 2 open positions and ideally, we are looking for one candidate with strong Electrical background and one with strong Mechanical background most likely a relevant master’s degree in Engineering or a similar education at master level ideally combined with of 3-5 years of relevant experience e.g. with sensor design tasks and/or integration of sensors.

For both profiles it is important you can handle the entire development journey from idea to handover to production and excel in multi-discipline environment and work smoothly across HW, SW and Mechatronics disciplines.  Furthermore, you have a strong theoretical mindset combined with ability to work hands on in lab and do the design work through a structured process with high focus on the work done with in high quality and with focus on design for manufacturing.

Ideally, we are looking for one profile with electronic background:

•You have large simulation experience (e.g. Saber) and use simulations as natural tool during the development work
•Preferably you have experience with programming tools like C/C#, MATLAB/python or similar.
•You have experience with design of hardware design of analogue and digital measurement circuits for harsh environment (temperature, vibration, moist) and with tough constrains on the physical space.
And on profile with mechanical background:
•You have simulation experience (e.g. Ansys, structural simulations) and use simulations as natural tool during the development work
•You have experience on design of moist and thermal issues.
•You design parts in composite and stainless steel based a structured design process, with high focus on quality and design for manufacturing in high volume.
•You have knowledge of shielding of electronics by use of gel, epoxy or similar.
Finally, you speak and write English at a high level.
“As a person, you are a team player and enjoy working with others as collaboration is a one of our key behaviors in Grundfos. Also, in your daily work, you getting the task done in a structured way not afraid to engage in practical stuff when needed.” Henning says.
What do we offer
We are offering an attractive job in R&D, where innovation is key to us and we aim to pioneer sustainable solutions to address the climate and water challenges.
You will be working closely together with many other skilled colleges and will soon profit from this large internal network of professionalism.
